I try to stay away from Gauchos. I've always been told that "pulling out" is unreliable, and potentially unsafe.

With a triple decker you have a choice of up one or down one.

The again, maybe it was supposed to be pronounced "Gotcha!' instead of gaucho... And a vintage unit with green shag, harvest gold, and disco on the 8 track, and a queen or double, you have the Silver Twinkie of Love! Upon reflection, I'm guessing that the twin beds were for the old folks who were not supposed to be having horizontal refreshment and lived like some 1950s tv show, and spent their time going to rallies with 3 amp power, and gopher holes, dressing in matching clothes, and dancing the hokey pokey. They arent good for much else besides sleeping. lol. My avion brochure from 1968 shows young people dressed in suits and nice clothes having a cocktail inside, hunters in pickups searching for game, families picnicking, and beachgoers. The 1967 brochure shows an elderly white couple going to tourist traps and dude ranches and of course the factory to pick up their new rv with the family sedan towing it. Who would have thought the demographic of the 50s and 60s would change to one with folks from all age grouops having access to internet porn, viagra, and have devoted 49 pages on sex in the stream... I bet the blue hairs of 1967 got frisky after a wild night of hokey pokey too... umm that didnt sound right. But i remember a tv show with one very old man telling a young sex crazed character who couldnt believe that the old man had an affair "what, you think you invented it?"

Can someone tell me if a 2" receiver is large enough?

Whilst I have not got my tape measure on it yet, it looks like about 2" by wrapping my fingers around it.
I am also concerned because there seems to be rust and scale in it...

The receiver should always be matched to the intended load, otherwise the result will be a bone rattling ride.
As far as the rust and scale, once you get it cleaned, and you continue to use it, you should have no problem. Just store it out of the weather when not in use.
